HANDOUT for How to Create a Floating Tree on Ancestry



This is the HANDOUT that matches the free video on Genealogy TV’s YouTube channel, “How to Create a Floating Tree on Ancestry.”

What is a floating tree? Why should you create a floating tree? In this episode I’ll show you how to create a floating tree on Ancestry and how it can help you with your family history research.

A floating tree is simply an unlinked tree within your tree.  It’s primary purpose is to trace other clans that somehow are associated with your ancestors.  

A floating tree stands alone and is not linked to anyone in your primary tree but is contained in the same file name as the tree you are working on eliminating the need to have multiple trees.  This is great for your F.A.N. Club Research!
